. >> as you reported on, joe biden could not be a better emissary on this issue, both for the reasons you pointed out, and also he knows personal tragedy and knows it well. so when he speaks about this issue, too, it comes from a personal place. and i think the president is smart in what he is doing here politically, as well. he knows that assault weapons ban, the ban on extended magazines, universal background checks. those are things that a republican congress is not just going to come out and support. he has to remind american people of how important this is. he has to get the american people behind him, and ultimately even if it takes a turnover in the house in 2014, which is something i think we personally could see. even if that is the end game having the american people behind him is ultimately the only way that anything real is going to happen here. >> richard wolff, a word on joe biden today. i was struck watching him lead the way into this subject. that i really cannot think of a more effective, more valuable vice president that we have had. unless you are a big fan of torture a

will keep going. >> over the past month, vice president joe biden and his task force is met with 229 groups from around the country. biden's task force provided a road map for the long drive ahead. >> while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent every tragedy, every act of evil. if there is even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try it. and i'm going to do my part. >> the president very compelling. he's willing to spend political capital in order to get something done. specific legislative proposals include a system of universal background checks, renewing the assault weapons ban from the clinton era, limiting high capacity magazines to ten bullets, providing more resources to states in reporting criminals and the mentally ill. out lawing armor-piercing bullets and funding, more funding, for police officers around the country. the president also signed 23 executive actions, most of them reinforcing laws already

wanted. >> it took joe biden less than 29 months to meet with 229 groups in the process of coming up with this menu of options from which president obama assembled this plan today. the speed of this effort continues to out pace its own expectations. the president said he wanted expectations by the end of this month. it's not the end of the month yet. vice president biden initially said you won't get them at the end of the month. you're going to get them early, you're going to get them on the 15th. he then turned his recommendations in early. and now, today, the 16th, legislation is due to hit congress next week, even before the time that president obama initially said he just wanted to start considering what the recommendations might be. by that time, the senate is already due to have started hearings on not just recommendations, but actual legislation that they are putting forward. the political common essence is that speed is of the essence. it has been one month and two days and the sense of urgency that there must be a response to that tragedy. >> in the month since 20 precious c

clinton, you also have joe biden, he's been ahead of this issue for a long time and a pers -- and senator gill brand, used to talk about how she had a gun underneath her bed and she's also someone who's talking about what do we do to stop gun violence. is this going to be even be beyond a conversation, i'm wondering, ted? is gun control going to be a kind of litmus test in 2016 for democrats? >> i think it could be. in presidential politics, there are basically two issues, the economy and war. and if the nation's economy continues to improve, if we're able to get out of afghanistan the way the president got us out of iraq. this issue of gun violence is emerging very quickly. and i have no doubt that it could become one of the dominant issues in the midterm election and also in the general election. >> also making news this morning, a story that has left a lot of football fans, well, you don't even have to be a faj because you probably heart about left folks feeling duped. notre dame's linebacker, manti teo's girlfriend died back in september, at least that's what we thought but it turned

at sandy hook. joe biden addressed the u.s. conference of mayors just this afternoon. >> in newtown some of those children were riddled with as many -- it's hard to even say it -- 11 bullet holes in a first grader. high capacity magazines in our view are not worth the risk. >> but you try telling that to the congress that would have to pass the legislation. republican responses have already ranged from i don't think so to impeach him. >> the president, he just doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> i'm afraid president obama may have a king complex. >> he's already abused the law enough times that it's just been staggering. the american revolution was all about fighting such a monarchy. >> we want all tools available to use, including that impeachment. >> with that kind of congressional opposition to the president, it was no sweat for nra president david keene to dismiss the president's initiatives as nothing but a grab bag of liberal feel-goodies. >> this is all sort of makes you feel good, but, in fact, it doesn't do much. >> he's confident say
